Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Velo Orange Fixed Hubs

Velo Orange has their new hubs out and they look pretty sweet and very affordable also. They make great stuff and hopefully these hubs will follow the rest of thier products in terms of quality and dependability. Have a look

Yummy! And for a down to earth price too!

Philwood better look out. UGh those tsunami relief hubs really put a dent in my free spending money that I'm still trying to buff out.

I thought the same when I saw them, Phil better look out. My next wheel build will be with those hubs, hopefully in about 2 months.

*sniff sniff*

Do I smell NovaTec? Probably not, as last time their representative came on here to clear things up with their manufacturing site.

That said, I'd love to lace some Open Pro to their road hubs.

EDIT:On second thoughts, 32/32 is not my prefer drilling.
